Default Car dock & Home dock differences

I've seen videos of the X in the car dock and in the home dock. I will be using mine as an alarm clock so will be using the home dock on my night stand. The videos show different screens when the X is put in each one. My question is, how does it know it is in the car dock or in the home dock?

It is done by magnets. Here is one example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMuhDWLAMKQ

Very cool video... I may have to make something similar for a dock at work. Although i'll try to make it look at least a little better than that^

I believe with the droid if you put a magnet behind a specific spot on the back of the phone one mode would launch. Flip the magnet around and the other mode launched.
